Patients in British Hospitals

Considerable numbers of New Zealand patients were admitted to British hospitals at this and all periods while the Division was in North Africa. In September the daily average was 11 officers and 211 other ranks, while in October it was 7 officers and 293 other ranks. This necessitated periodical visits by our consultants to the British hospitals to facilitate the return of the more serious cases to our own hospitals, and with a view to the boarding of cases for return to New Zealand. The scattering of our patients caused some administrative difficulties, including the despatch of mail.
